The report states that Swansea City have an offer of around £2.5m accepted by the Midlands club.
The same report suggests that Everton remain in the hunt for Vitesse Arnhem striker Wilfried Bony who is also wanted by Newcastle United if speculation is to be believed.

The only clubs that can offer his demands are maybe Anzhi, Zenit, Monaco, PSG and Madrid.
The more we raise the price, the more players we can get for his fee.

Ross – I don't think we can raise Fellaini's price because, once Fellaini's buyout clause has been met, he's free to go.
302 Posted 25/06/2013 at 21:33:40
I hope that Monaco, PSG or Anzhi or Zenit bid for him as they will pay him massive money.
308 Posted 25/06/2013 at 21:40:48
I really hope Fellaini is sold soon, so RM can start making his full shopping list.
Remond sound like a steal at £2.5 million and I can't believe we can't out bid Swansea for his services

I like Felli, but if we do keep him then he has to sign a contract. He obviously wont do this...but otherwise we're giong to get into anther Pienaar situation.

There is money, its just not in our bank account yet. We can presumably take a short term loan for a few months if we wanted to buy anyone, or simply defer paying the transfer fee for a few months – most transfer fees are not paid all up front anyway. Only question is how much of the money BK is going to give RM.
Also with Moyes, Mucha, Hitzlsperger and Neville already gone, we've already freed up a big wadge in the wage bill come 1st July (RM is on no where near the money that DM was on) – guessing around £150k a week.
Don't expect any signings until July...

Michael, be a pessimist, some of us dare to dream of better times you know
334 Posted 25/06/2013 at 22:50:23
McGeady would be a good buy for £4m, he has looked good and I have actually seen him play!
335 Posted 25/06/2013 at 22:58:57
Bill will take the sky money and pay off loans, so he can stay in control!

Let's say it's £10m now. We buy a striker and a winger for £5m each and a defender for free.
Now let's say Fellaini goes, so he has £33m... eg, a midfielder for £10m, free defender, thus £23m for striker and winger.
Best thing that can happen is Felli goes soon. That's not in our hands though, is it, so let's not resort to type and blame Bill, eh!!! surely we are more mature than that.
363 Posted 26/06/2013 at 00:42:00
On the subject of Redmond, from what I've seen it would be worth matching £2.5M but no more. Having said that, I would not expect him to replace either Pienaar or Mirallas but to be an impact player from the bench for next season at least.
366 Posted 25/06/2013 at 23:45:20
He is looking to bring in disciplined footballers of good character who are willing to adhere to the Martinez principles.. To him, it is not about who can trap a ball, who can dribble, who can head, who can shoot etc...It's all about his belief in the way football should be played and who he can trust to do a job for him As an ex Wigan captain recently pointed out.(quote)."He is tremendously thorough. If he has to travel thousands of miles to get someone he will. Once he spots a player who will strengthen his team he's like a bloodhound on the trail of a fugitive."
So maybe he didn't fancy Redmond. The boy is a decent prospect but a starting position elsewhere is better than warming our bench. Good luck to him.
Personally, I am right behind Martinez in everything he does. His non-stop positive chat will drive me up the wall but I believe firmly in his football philosophy and hope BK and his mates find a way of supporting him.

I admire your optimism regarding money to spend. I would suggest that, if Fellaini goes, Martinez will get around 50%, the other half will go to the usual places, ie, Banks and "other operating costs" – things that nobody knows anything about.
If Fellaini is sold sooner rather than later, then we will buy sooner rather than later. If he doesn't go, then we will only see someone come in after we receive the telly money unless the selling club take an IOU. Nothing will change whilst this lot are in charge.
I think our manager is still sunning himself in Brazil whilst the Shite from across the Park have already doled out over £20 mill on new signings. Puts it in perspective, doesn't it!

388 Posted 26/06/2013 at 06:07:53
The value of players we can't afford is at least getting better!
390 Posted 26/06/2013 at 07:05:53
1. It's the daily mail (enough said there...)
2. At no point does it say we couldn't afford him. It just says that someone else's higher bid has been accepted above our (possibly initial) bid. Pretty standard stuff.
3. There obviously will be some money of some sort available to buy. We will have gotten good money in the prize league table, there's the tv deal, we've offloaded some wages from the books. There always is something to spend, just not the huge piles that some hope for.
I know its popular to bash the club with some posters, but I think a few lines in the daily mail about some other club having a bid accepted for player that we might not even be particularly interested in is hardly ammunition to do so.

Does RM tell Bill to get a player he wants at any cost or does he tell Bill to offer so much as that's all he thinks the player is worth?
409 Posted 26/06/2013 at 09:05:48
417 Posted 26/06/2013 at 09:15:20
Hopefully RM is eyeing up the talent over in Brazil, Honda for a small fee would be a good start. The shirt sales in Japan would pay the fee...if we weren't tied to the Shitbag deal!
421 Posted 26/06/2013 at 09:50:04
If we have to push our price up for somebody like Honda I would rather see that than be pissed about by Birmingham for a nice to have player
